Cleft Lips and Palates

October 11, 2012

In West Africa, Mercy Ships works in partnership with the Ministry of Health, local physicians and other charities to provide life-enhancing and, in many cases, life-saving surgeries to repair cleft lips and palates.

This condition is easily repaired in the developed world, but babies in the developing world have little access to corrective surgery. As a result. they suffer from malnourishment, and the children who survive are often rejected and abandoned. In addition, specialized surgical training is provided to local African surgeons.

Mixed emotions….(My dear friend).

Trying to understand my mixed emotions as I think about my dear friend. Knowing that this sadness, this fear and this emptiness is causing my aniexty to flare up.

Bad news from the doctor left my friend scared about not being here anymore.

What words do I give for comfort or is there any words for comfort at a time like this?

I will be there for support but what about easing my friend heartaches and internal body pain. How can I bring back my friend strength and glow? I pray that recovery and health and strength return to my
friend.

I wonder when we all face the end, how will we feel about the life we lived?

Are there any wrongs and any
rights as to how we live our lives?

We are told to repent of our sins because we are known to sin.

I am confident with who i am and i don’t question who i am and along the way i’ve learned to never live my life for others.

Live your life because tomorrow or the next hour, minute or second  is never promised.

Do good to help others and never judge even when you have walked in the next man’s shoes.

We are humans and we have faults and so many different flaws about us, but we are humans.

We learn to live with the flaws of others and we understand human nature and all it has to offer us.

When we understand that we were created to be a free people, then we understand that life goes on, because it was meant to be.

In life on earth we meet some good people and we never know what life have in store. My friend is a good person and God sees and knows.

When we part this earth we can be strong and courageous and hold our heads high and know that nothing that we did on this earth is in vain.

These mixed feelings all rolling in my head. My worst fear is my friend leaving me. But my greatest joy is that in return I can help my friend because my friend trust and love me to ask me too.

Speaking The Truth

Preparing For A Nuclear Disaster!!!!

Preparedness, warned that most US states are not prepared to deal with a nuclear emergency. That may start to change for the better now, but no matter where you live, you can and should take your own steps to protect yourself and your family. Here’s what you need to know to survive a release of radiation from a nuclear power plant, whether due to an earthquake, a malfunction in an aging plant — or even a terrorist attack…

PLANNING FOR THE SITUATION YOU’RE IN

A look at the current crisis in Japan shows people coping with a wide range of situations. Some were located in “the evacuation zone” within 12 miles of the reactor, where everyone was asked to leave (the US has set the limit for Americans in Japan higher and calls for a 50-mile evacuation). Others are located in a “take shelter zone,” 12 to 19 miles from the reactor. Beyond that, by Japanese standards, you are in the safe zone. The US asks for a measure of “beyond 50 miles” to meet this qualification. So planning for a family’s safety in one situation as opposed to another could be quite radically different. Whether you will stay or not, and for how long, will depend on what officials tell you to do based on the particulars of the situation, but a key lesson is to be prepared to hunker down for quite a few days in case you can’t leave immediately.

In Japan, if you were fortunate enough to be in the safe zone, the questions you faced were very straightforward. You watched the news, assessed the most reliable information you could, and either made plans to stay or gathered your family and went as quickly as possible to friends or relatives who you felt could offer you safer haven.

If however, you were living within either of the areas closer to the radiation leak — either “the evacuation zone” or the “take shelter zone” — you would have needed a very different kind of plan.

Some family members might have been at their places of business at the onset of the emergency… others at school or elsewhere. Deciding in advance where, when and how you would all make contact could have been critical. And you would need to have a plan B as well, as there is no way to know in advance which parts of a community, town or region would be safest — or where it would be safest to meet. The lesson: Make sure you all carry your cell phones and have each other’s numbers and that everyone knows how to send and receive text messages. If the cell-phone network goes down, text messages sometimes get through when voice phone calls cannot. Taking Shelter

Once your family members are accounted for, people in the evacuation zone would do just that — evacuate. For that group and for the “take shelter” group, radiation would become the next, primary concern. You would need to protect yourself and your loved ones against the escape of radioisotopes such as Iodine 131 and Cesium 137, which can respectively cause thyroid cancer or general cell damage that could result in cancer years down the road. If you absolutely must go out of doors, protect yourself as best you can by covering all skin, including wearing a hat and gloves even if the weather is warm. James H. Thrall, MD, radiologist-in-chief at Massachusetts General Hospital and professor of radiology at Harvard Medical School, told me that there are medicines to help (more on this below) and practical steps that can be taken to keep yourself as safe as possible from the dangers.

Remove Contaminated Clothing

If you’ve been outside and may have been contaminated, get into an area that is free of contamination and quickly remove your clothing and shoes. This eliminates about 90% of external contamination, according to the Mayo Clinic. Place all clothing in a plastic bag, seal or tie it and place it as far away as possible from humans and animals. (Later you can call local authorities and ask about the proper disposal of this hazardous waste.)

Take a Shower

To remove any remaining radioactive particles, take a shower using plenty of soap and hot water if it’s available. Gentle washing — not scrubbing — is best, since you don’t want to break your skin and allow particles to enter. Use shampoo but not conditioner in your hair. Conditioner binds with radioactive material and keeps it from rinsing out easily. Gently blow your nose, and wipe your eyelids, eyelashes and ears with a clean, wet cloth. Wash feet extra well, especially if they have gotten wet in water that could have contained contamination. (Afterward, dispose of any cleaning materials along with your clothing.)

Seal Out Contaminants

Put duct tape and plastic sheeting around windows and doors to seal out contaminants. Close vents, fireplace flues and other openings. Use an air cleaner with a HEPA filter to remove airborne contaminants — it might be a good idea to buy one now if you don’t already have one.

Emergency Supplies

Emergency supplies will be critical while you wait or once you are on the move. (Be sure to assemble these things and keep them in your house, just in case we have a nuclear emergency in the US.)
* Water. One gallon per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and for sanitation.

* Food. Much supply of cans (and a few can openers) plus other nonperishable items that require little or no preparation, no cooking and very little water to prepare — such as jars of peanut butter, dried fruits, crackers and nuts. Also include a supply of infant formula, if appropriate.

* Face masks for filtering particles from contaminated air. Ordinary face masks used in medical applications are not effective as they do not fit tightly enough, Dr. Thrall said. But there is another class of face mask typically referred to as a “respirator” that can be form fitted. These are very effective in filtering even virus-sized particles. For more information about respirators, including the N95 filtering face piece respirator certified by the CDC/National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), check their Web site at www.cdc.gov/niosh/npptl/topics/respirators/factsheets/respfact.html

 * A battery-powered radio and a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio with tone alert will provide immediate access to official information in case of emergency. Be sure you have plenty of extra batteries. In addition you should have a hand-crank radio — shop now for one that incorporates a built-in cell-phone charging receptacle.

* Flashlights. Batteries run out much quicker than most of us anticipate. Consider also a Forever Flashlight (or similar brand), which does not need batteries. Instead, shaking it for 30 seconds charges a capacitor to provide five to seven minutes of light. A flashlight with an LED bulb will run longer than a standard one.

* Plastic sheeting, scissors and duct tape for sealing off a safe area in your house.

* A first-aid kit with sterile gloves and dressings, adhesive bandages and eyewash to use as a decontaminant is critical as well. Also keep on hand a supply of your prescription medications. (Rotate these periodically due to expiration dates.)

* A good, strong whistle on a long string for each person in your family to signal for help if necessary.

Other items: Cash, extra eyeglasses, pet food and extra water for your pet, sleeping bags or warm insulated blankets, changes of clothing, diapers and copies of important family documents such as passports, birth certificates and insurance policy papers.

WATCH WHAT YOU EAT AND DRINK

Do not consume local produce until government monitors confirm that radioactive isotopes have decayed to safe levels. Food Safety officials in Japan found that Iodine 131 in their tested milk was up to five times what the government deems safe, and spinach had levels of more than seven times the safe level. Shipments of both milk and spinach were halted. But certain types of radioactivity decay rapidly. For example, Iodine 131 has an eight-day half life, so it is nearly all gone in two and one half months, says Dr. Thrall.
COPING WITH THE FALLOUT

In the years following the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear power plant disaster, during which large concentrations of Cesium 137, Iodine 131 and other radioactive isotopes were released, an epidemic of thyroid cancer developed because children drank milk from cows grazing on grass contaminated by fallout. Children and fetuses are particularly vulnerable to the effects of radiation because they are still growing and their cells are rapidly dividing. That is why exposed children and pregnant women should be the first to be given the most protective medicine available — potassium iodide pills. But since the exposure to radioactive elements such as iodine and cesium may be gradual you may be able to protect yourself…

When to Take Potassium Iodide

Following the nuclear incident in Japan, there was a worldwide run on potassium iodide (KI), which protects people from radiation-induced thyroid cancer. These over-the-counter tablets work by flooding the thyroid gland with nonradioactive iodine so that radioactive iodine cannot be absorbed. But KI can harm you if it’s taken unnecessarily. So the question is, how do you know whether you’ve been exposed to radioactive iodine?

According to Dr. Thrall, “In some cases, you cannot tell if you’ve been exposed, but anyone known to be within an established zone of higher fallout is presumed to have been.

The real question is the uncertainty of how much the exposure has been and whether taking potassium iodide is necessary. People should understand that a small fraction of people will have an allergic or other reaction to potassium iodide, and a small fraction may develop either hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism depending on the status of their thyroid glands, something that is also typically not known. That is why it is not recommended that people take potassium iodide without a substantial reason. They should wait for an official announcement about it.”

 If you do end up taking KI pills, Dr. Thrall said it’s best to do so within two to four hours of exposure. Typical doses: Age 18+, 130 mg daily… age three to 18, 65 mg daily… one month to three years, 32 mg daily… birth to one month, 16 mg daily — until authorities announce that there is no more risk for exposure. In 2002, the US Congress passed legislation requiring the government to supply potassium iodide to everyone living within a 20-mile radius of a nuclear power plant — but no administration has ever implemented the provision, and I’d hate to wait for an emergency to test the distribution system. You can buy the pills yourself online and at many pharmacies — just be sure they are made by one of the FDA-approved companies — such as losat tablets www.anbex.com

 Remember that KI protects against only thyroid cancer. There are other cancer risks associated with radiation exposure, and medications to help reduce your risk might include medications to stimulate your bone marrow to manufacture more cells or drugs to rid the body of radioisotopes.

For example, Prussian blue is a dye that binds to the radioactive particles cesium and thallium and can be used as an antidote after exposure. So those who are exposed to a radiation leak should stay in close touch with their physicians and consider more frequent screenings to counter any exposure-related cancer risk. In Dr. Thrall’s opinion, the biggest ongoing health problems after most nuclear power plant incidents are psychological — having been close to radiation causes mental anguish and it is impossible to know how one’s future might have been altered by the event. This stress can be debilitating for some people if not addressed — so be sure to reach out and get the emotional as well as physical health support you need following any disaster.

Husband Became Sick, Your Grocery Store Is Toxic To Humans.

My Husband became sick immediately after eating breakfast the last 2 Mornings after he added SEA SALT to his food. With him having 1 kidney I became concerned. After realizing it wasn’t any of the other foods he had been eating plenty times before, I did a research on SEA SALT and to my surprise I found some very shocking news.

Sodium ferrocyanide found in SEA SALT, also known as tetrasodium hexacyanoferrate or sodium hexacyanoferrate(II), is a coordination compound of formula Na4Fe(CN)6 that forms semitransparent yellow crystals at room temperature and decomposes at its boiling point. It is soluble in water and insoluble in alcohol. it can react with acid or photodecompose to release hydrogen cyanide gas. In its hydrous form, Na4Fe(CN)6·10H2O (sodium ferrocyanide decahydrate), it is sometimes known as yellow prussiate of soda which you will find as part of the Ingrediants in SEA SALT (YP Soda). The yellow color is the color of ferrocyanide anion.

Uses:
Sodium ferrocyanide is a chemical additive known as E 535. It is added to road and food grade salt as an anticaking agent.[2] When combined with iron, it converts to a deep blue pigment, which is the main component of Prussian blue.

[3] In photography, it is used for bleaching, toning, and fixing. It is used as a stabilizer for the coating on welding rods. In the petroleum industry, it is used for removal of mercaptans. Toxicological evaluation of some food
additives including anticaking agents, antimicrobials, antioxidants, emulsifiers and thickening agents.

Biochemical Research has been done in Dogs, Rabbits, Rats, Infants and Adult Humans, proved to show Health Problems including Renal/Kidney problems in some studies. Studies also indicted chronic Imflammation of Liver and Kidney. Studies also shows white and red blood cells affected in living beings.

So my question to all this is WHY IN THE WORLD DO THEY HAVE IT IN THE GROCERY STORES ALONG SIDE THE COOKING SALT FOR HUMANS TO INGEST? My thoughts are simple as this: What better way to make money to get people sick so the drug companies and doctors can get rich off of Humans. No matter that Humans can die from this crap, it was put in food stores for humans to ingest as a food. No Warning labels of it’s danger to humans. Lord I can’t even think of the words I want to say. But thank you Lord for containing my words, because it could be much worse. (Quemela).
